Mr. Nude Seattle contest 10th anniversary
With a little over a month before the 10th anniversary of the Mr. Nude Seattle contest, I took a short break from putting up posters, sending out e-mails, passing out flyers and, of course, going to the bars on Capitol Hill to find that elusive, shy contestant who might want to become the next Mr. Nude Seattle. As I take this breather, I have the chance to reflect on the previous nine years and the excitement each contest has brought to both me and the audience.

From the beginning, this event was a chance for me to do something different for the Seattle LGBT community. Not everyone wanted to go to a drag show to raise money, and not everyone wanted or needed to get their car washed on Saturday, so I came up with the idea of the Mr. Nude Seattle contest. I intended only to do one to raise money for a local charity, but it was immediately apparent after we packed the small space I had booked for the event we were going to have to do this contest again the following year.

That first year brought a fantastic Mr. Nude Seattle by the name of Dane Roberts. Not to put it lightly, Dane worked his ass off for the LGBT community by hosting Weenie Roasts at C.C. Attles wearing nothing more than a string bikini and some tennis shoes. Come rain or shine, and even in the coldest weather, Dane was out there flipping those weenies on the popular Seattle bar's patio.

Now we are working on our tenth contest. Each year has brought a wide variety of exciting contestants. Some were shy and many others have been perfectly comfortable with their nudity.

With this years contest almost here, it is an honor that porn stars Brodie Newport from Titan Men and  returning once again this year  Damon Phoenix are here for your entertainment.

While touching bases with Mr. Nude Seattle 2007 Cole Ryan, I found out that he is also working in the porn industry for Titan Men among other porn studios. What a shocker that was, when I found out about his porn involvement. I always wanted my guys who became winners to explore their options in life and Cole Ryan has certainly done that.

Our sponsors for this year are R Place (our 10-year sponsor), the Olympians and new this year are Purr, Club Z, PJs Erotic Shop and Virtually

PJs Erotic Shop and Virtually will be providing some adult giveaways to the audience as door prizes.

The Mr. Nude Seattle contest is an amateur contest with a $500 cash prize for the winner and any male over the age of 18 can enter for their chance to show their goodies to the audience. The categories are First Look (clothed), Striptease (all the way nude), Question and Answer (nude) and Last Look (nude). There is a $25 entry fee for the contestants.

The 10th Anniversary of the Mr. Nude Seattle contest is being held on Monday April 7, 2008 and again the contest is being held at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, located on the corner of 17th and Yesler (104 - 17th Ave S.). Tickets for the contest are $20 at the door.
